Applicant Tracking Solutions Provider Offers New Product

Small employers looking to purchase hr software has different needs than larger corporations. Both may be looking for an efficient option, but businesses with fewer workers also have smaller budgets and need a program that does not require a lot of time to master.

In hopes of fulfilling the needs of such employers, applicant tracking solutions provider myStaffingPro recently expanded its line of products with a new Express edition. MyStaffingPro Express has been designed to be a straightforward option that focuses on the essentials.

This system gives hr mangers the fundamentals, enabling them to post jobs, collect candidate resumes and manage other aspects of the hiring process. The implementation experience has been simplified into a five-step checklist which can be completed in a relatively short amount of time. This checklist gives the user immediate access to manage locations, job posting categories and job templates. Once the user has finished the checklist, they can immediately create and post a requisition to the candidate portal. Express also offers the optional inclusion of collecting and reporting on EEO data.

"Customers using myStaffingPro Express will appreciate the easy implementation and straightforward interface," said the company's director of sales, Ruth Ann Stover, in a recent press release. "myStaffingPro Express is a great starting point for small businesses that need an applicant tracking system. If the time comes when a more robust system is needed, any company can transition from our Express product to our Standard product. It's a win-win for everyone."

Helping to make the application process easier on job seekers, myStaffingPro express allows candidates to apply to positions and submit their resumes through either the companies career portal or a job board. After sending in their information, applicants then receive a thank you message and an e-mail that verifies that their resume has been received. Since many job seekers worry about employers receiving their information when they are unable to personally hand it to them, many applicants appreciate this confirmation notice.

Those who chose myStaffingPro Express also benefit from a central database that allows 24-hour access to applicant and requisition information. User only have to log into the program to have the up-to-date data at their fingertips. At any point during the process employers are able to remove postings from the candidate portal. This keeps the hr manager from having to deal with a stack of resumes for a position that has already been filled and gives them the ability to take down an announcement that contains errors.

Businesses interested in the program can find an online demonstration on the companies website and can receive a 30-day trial free of charge.
